About Me

My Photo
Well let’s see. I was born during the Blizzard of 1978 in Lima, Ohio. I have lived in Ohio all my life. I like it here. We have corn fields instead of oceans, overpasses instead of mountains and fog instead of smog. Sure it's not the promise land, but sometimes one doesn't need postcard worthy beauty on the outside to have it elsewhere. I'm a writer for fun, a Paralegal for profession, and while one pays the bills, one feeds my imagination, or perhaps my imagination feeds my writing...either way, Writing is as much of who I am as the color of my eyes, or the way that I smile. Blogs are great communication tools, and I'm here to communicate with YOU...yeah, you who's reading this right now....*assuming anyone's out there* *crickets chirp* Alrightee then, IF anyone should find themselves here, be it by accident or on purpose, welcome, glad to have you aboard. Throw anchor, stay awhile! Sunshine & Smiles, ~Heather Lynn~

O, lets be +

I'll start this post out by saying my blood type is O+ and the American Red Cross loves me.  Seriously, they love me like Vampires love jugular veins!  Every time a blood drive is near me, they call me.  As I am a happy to donate donor.

With that said, while on my lunch hour today, watching the most recent thunderstorm begin to drift away from Lima....I started thinking about blood....and types of blood, and FIRST let me preface this by saying that I am SO NOT A SCIENTIST, nor do I know crap about blood types etc.  But I was thinking, why do humans have different blood types?

I mean, IF lets say, everything under the heavens has a purpose, and nothing is accidental, then why would human's have different types of blood?

I recently saw this chart:

...and I wondered, if there were any truth to any of this or if it was all just hooey?

I mean, why would red meat be "medicine" to my type O, but be toxic to another human with a different blood type.  I mean, I'm sure it's possible, but why?  Why would human's be made like this?

Then I thought, if we call came from Adam and Eve, (if you believe in that)....COULD we all have so many different blood types from one another?  Is that even possible?

Then it got me thinking...what if we were all still cave men / cave women....with no knowledge of this blood type information....what purpose would us having different blood types make?  We wouldn't be donating it, we wouldn't be giving each other organs, our diets would be nearly identical to those around us....isn't that strange?  Were we always meant to evolve past the cave man era and become what and who we are today?

Isn't the above chart fascinating?  Bororo People are 100% "O"....and they are the ONLY ones 100% one type!  No other group of people comes CLOSE to that kind of solidarity.  
This of course makes me really excited because now I can say that I have something in common with the Bororo people!

However some people might not believe me because they look like this:  

while I look like this:
  but still....
I will contend, same blood, same blood!

I think it just goes to show you, that it doesn't matter what we show on the outside, on the inside, we are very much the same.  Our hearts pump THE SAME blood...
Maybe it's just me, but I just think that is really neat.
How one one hand we are wildly different, but yet fundamentally the same.
We are all Human.

However, with that in mind, AS humans, why can He (the fella from up above me there) and I give our fellow positive blood types our blood, while we can not receive blood from people with different types?  And why can O- give to everyone?

Why isn't all human blood universal?

And did you know that Dogs have over 13 types of different blood groups, while cats have 3, Equines (Horses/Donkey's/etc.) have 10, with Bovines - (Cattle) have 9.

And here's a little factoid for you:  
Most all cats in the Unites States are Feline Blood Type A.

And this my friends is why I'm NEVER going to be able to study for my Real Estate Test, because my mind wants to be thinking about blood types, and Adam and Eve, and the Bororo People and their super cool face jewelry...

Focus Heather...focus....

Well, so that's today's rambling....

I'll just go ahead and apologize now for taking up your time!
My Apologies dear readers!
